Oran Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The town was founded by Andalusian seamen in AD937 and flourished under Zianid rule, developing strong trading ties with Spain, which eventually led to Spanish occupation from 1509 to 1708 when Oran was captured by Ottoman forces. The Spanish recaptured the city two years later but withdrew after an earthquake destroyed most of the city in 1790.
Nowadays Oran is a very busy port and city. There are a
lot of things to do and see in town. The city centre coastline (front
de mer) is the ideal place to hang out with friends, drink mint tea and
have an ice cream.
